LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Touch Sensor
You can speed up your robotic missions and teach real-world uses for touch technology with the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Touch Sensor. The clue’s in the name with the Touch Sensor; by adding one to your robotic models, you give it a sense of touch.
Pupils can program the Touch Sensor to react when it is pressed or released or both. The potential for this sensor is wide reaching and provides real-world context for pupils’ coding lessons. Touch sensors are used in all sorts of electronic products we use in daily life meaning you can provide pupils insight into the day-to-day processes for designers, engineers and programmers in electronics.
• Build a robot hand or incorporate botany and create a robotic Venus Fly Trap that closes when something touches it.
• Save time when completing missions with the Touch Sensor as it can replace the buttons on the Intelligent Brick (not included) as an indication to the robot of what to do next.
• Expand your pupils’ experience of coding and programming by including this extra sensor into the robotics mix.
